This post is full of photos that inspire me to change a few things around my home or create something new.

Decorate with Barn Doors

A client/friend of mine has a beautiful home. The den off of her foyer reminds me of a men's "smoking room" from the old days. It is masculine with leather recliners and a big TV for football night. The ceilings are tall so the art we used needed to be big. I found some barn doors at a salvage store and repainted them. We kept all the original hardware on the doors and painted them a flat black.
These are huge and heavy. I needed help with the transport of these "beasts".They were painted gray and missing glass in the top opening. We filled the top openings with pet fencing and gave it a good coat of rusty red paint, I used crackle paint in some places so they still look old.

{Old Window & Family Photos Display}

I was so lucky to find this enormous window.
It measures 100 inches wide and 63 inches long.
The sofa's name is seriously "Bertha" - she's a big comfy couch.
 The large window matches her scale.

I sit out here all the time....
